About Us

Empowering HCM solution buyers to make better decisions

Why We Exist

We are Human Capital Management (HCM) experts that empower HR teams to make better buying decisions. By providing transparency around HCM vendor quality, capabilities and pricing, we shift the balance of power from the vendor to the buyer ensuring our clients are educated to make the best possible purchasing decisions.

With literally hundreds of HCM providers, it’s challenging and time consuming for HR teams to find the right HCM for their needs at the best price - without hiring high-priced consultants. We wanted to offer mid-market employers the same type of HCM expertise the big guys get, but for a fraction of the cost.

My nearly 20 year professional career has been a healthy mix of working in HR and operations for large fortune 100 companies and being an entrepreneur. I co-founded SelectHCM because I believe a wisely selected, properly implemented, and successfully adopted HCM solution can transform human connectivity and HR operations - helping HR teams put their time to its best and highest use.
